ORIOLES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kevin Gausman shows signs of development in latest Orioles’ loss

At this point of the season, it’s all about finding moral victories for the Baltimore Orioles. Though the team is on the fringes of Wild Card contention, make no mistake, this is a team headed in the wrong direction. The hitters are swinging at everything (what else is new?), the starting pitching continues to go belly-up, even Zach Britton and Darren O’Day have melted down,...

The Orioles’ frustrating season

It wasn’t supposed to be this way for the Orioles. After a second trip to the postseason in three years, one in which they got about one-sixth of a season from Matt Wieters and half a season from Manny Machado, making the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1996-1997 was the clear goal. It hasn’t happened that way. The team recently dropped six straight...

For the Baltmore Orioles, it was fun while it lasted

The Orioles were not a team of destiny a season ago. They were just really damn good.    Ninety-six wins is evidence enough, but a club that's able to run away with a perennially close AL East—with Manny Machado, Matt Wieters and Chris Davis all absent during the grind of September and October—is certainly one to be respected.  Had it not been for a historically...

J.J. Hardy’s contract could turn into albatross for Orioles

Quickly, and without much fanfare, J.J. Hardy and the Baltimore Orioles agreed to a three-year extension on the eve of last year’s American League Championship Series. It seemed like a good enough deal at the time. For $40 million over those three years, the Orioles would have themselves a Gold Glove winning player who hit with power from a premium position. The New York Yankees...

Orioles Prospect Ryan Mountcastle Takes Game to Next Level

From a very precious age, a baseball player typically faces those who are older than them. Against competitors bigger, stronger, and faster, there is consistently a need to prove themselves. Having a standout quality helps separate them and enables them to garner fear and respect from the elder peers. At just eighteen years of age, Orlando native Ryan Mountcastle experiences these...

Video: Jonathan Schoop blasts 484-foot home run

You could be forgiven if you haven’t heard of Jonathan Schoop. But after what he did Wednesday night, you might want to get familiar with the Baltimore Orioles’ second baseman. During an 8-5 win over the Kansas City Royals, Schoop took Johnny Cueto deep, and when we say deep, we mean deep. In the top of the fourth, the 23-year-old Curocaoan turned around a 1-2 fastball and deposited...

Perpetually Looping Video: Chris Davis vs. All Capitalism

“Was it Karl Marx,” one might ask drunkenly at a party, “or Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis who memorably declared that ‘The production of too many useful things results in too many useless people’?” The answer, technically: Karl Marx, in his text Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844. The answer, metaphorically: Chris Davis, actually, by means of...

Baltimore Orioles improve using addition by subtraction

Prior to yesterday’s blowout loss to the Minnesota Twins, the Baltimore Orioles had won five of their last six games. That included a four-game sweep of the Oakland Athletics and an exciting walk-off win over the New York Mets. Before that winning streak, the Orioles had lost three players, including two outfielders who were previously expected to form the committee in left field...

The Orioles’ playoff potential is strong

Last year the Orioles won the AL East division with 96 wins. They continued their success by sweeping the Tigers in the AL Division Series. Things were looking great. Then they got swept in four games by the Royals in the AL Championship Series. It was still a successful season all things considered and expectations where high going into the offseason.

You may have noticed that Chris Davis is on a tear, elevating his season HR total to 30. The Chris Mottram lookalike’s OPS+ is up to 134, the second-best of his career. You may have also noticed that thing on his face: The Orioles slugger had let his beard and mustache go until it was threatening the Orioles’ strict no-beard rule, so he shaved the beard but kept the mustache...

Before being drafted by the Cleveland Indians in 1989, Thome graduated from...

Outfielders available for Orioles, but do they have enough to make a deal?

A six-game stretch shouldn’t make or break a MLB team’s season. But front offices might place some added importance on games this close to the July 31 trade deadline, as they could determine whether or not a club should try to add pieces or sell them off. The Baltimore Orioles are in that sort of precarious spot beginning this week. With three games at the Yankees, followed by...
